They can work to assist your IT department, freeing their time for more critical tasks and increase your overall productivity. A good provider will drive your business value and be in it for the long haul. Here are two ideas that can help you to maximize your MPS experience!
More than Printing
Technology is driving business today. Whether it’s upgrading your sales team’s mobile capabilities, or lowering your cost per page, an MPS provider is going to be fluent in the latest business technologies. The first step to take with any potential provider is to undertake a full assessment and evaluation of your current technology. They will work to determine the best approach, whether it’s better utilizing your existing hardware or upgrading to the latest cost saving devices.
Your IT environment extends beyond hardware; so should your MPS engagement. When selecting an MPS provider, they should understand your business and suggest solutions that are right for you, whether it’s a software based approach to centralize your document sharing, or a complete mobile solution incorporating your employees personal devices. A good provider will advise you on the best solutions for your specific business needs.
Identify, Continually Improve and Refine
Your company will change over time. All business evolves and so does the technology needed to service your customers. This is where your MPS service agreement is most important. You need to work with a provider who will grow with you. If your needs increase or change, you’ll need flexibility in your agreement to expand services. A professional will be able to provide analysis of your past business with an understanding of future growth when making recommendations. The best relationships become more than vendor / client. They become a partnership.
